That's the team! I went to NC State b-ball camp in those days (Norm Sloan) and Duke (Bill Foster) as well. Had Monte Towe as counsellor - who is now back on bench as asst to Sidney Lowe.

Carter Finley stadium - hasn't changed too much.

Remember when there was "Duke's Bill Foster" and "Clemson's Bill Foster"?

Yep.

Clemson - you know why their fans always wear orange?

To go to the game on Saturday, hunting on Sunday, and back to road crew on Monday through Friday.

Best hit I ever saw in a football game was Woody Hayes against a Clemson player....

funny, we might have attended the same camp...

I always liked norm sloan, he was really nice to me...(though he couldn't due magic tricks like holtz but on the positive side he never became a domer)

I was fortunate to spend summers in raleigh during those years and would only get down for a football game or two in the fall...usually against duke either home or away...

I have some good memories of the campus, carter-finley and reynolds coliseum...

monte towe, must be one of the only players to get signed based on another player (i.e., thompson) the way he did...
